Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft
As you level, max out Deflection, Imp Thunderclap, then Imp HS (or you could go for Unbridled Wrath after Deflection if you like)
For soloing you are going to want to be DWing with 5% +hit and plenty of AP. You'll want a slow mainhand for high damage Devastates, and a weapon with good DPS and stats for your offhand (the delay really doesn't matter here, you will rarely be using WW). Do not use a shield. Please, please do not use a shield for soloing.
Answering the questions now:
You don't have Improved Shield Block?
Improved Shield Block is a prerequisite for raiding. It is a lot of points spent if you won't be tanking anything that crushes.
It's good for 5-mans, and its good training wheels for a tank
Improved Shield Bash?
There really isn't much else better, and it has some utility for moving casters around in a group setting. Get something else if you don't like it.
Improved Blood Rage?
Tough call here.. Imp BR is nice for starting a pull with Shield Slams, but Tactical Mastery has it's merits as well. You won't be using Bloodrage for soloing, but you'll like the extra rage in a group.
Why wouldn't you just do Fury with a few points in Prot?
I've done grinding both as 44/17 and 10/7/44. Prot is faster. I'm dead serious.
